Sting Thanks Tony Khan For AEW Run

Sting has thanked Khan for making his final run possible.

The now-retired Sting has thanked All Elite Wrestling owner Tony Khan for giving him his final run and send-off. 

Writing on X, the 64-year-old said: "Still on cloud nine from last Sunday. But it would not have been possible without @TonyKhan. Thank you for the last three-plus years, for your friendship… for everything. Thank you Tony!".

At Revolution last Sunday, Sting closed out an incredible 39-year career by teaming with Darby Allin to successfully defend the AEW World Tag Team Titles against the Young Bucks in the show's Tornado Rules headliner. 

The WWE Hall of Famer ended his AEW career undefeated. Following their victory, Sting and Allin vacated their titles, with new champions set to be determined via a tournament. 

Though Sting wanted to lose the titles in his final match, Khan and the Bucks were adamant that he win his last outing.

While The Icon may make appearances for AEW in the future, he has ruled out becoming a manager or backstage producer. 

As for the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion's retirement plans, Sting's son Garrett exclusively revealed to Cultaholic what his father intends to do now his in-ring days are done.
